U.S. Chamber of Commerce Executive Vice President and Chief Policy Officer Neil Bradley today issued the following statement on the introduction of legislation in the Senate to advance the next package of coronavirus economic relief. On July 16, the Chamber sent a detailed letter on key provisions to include in the legislative package.  

“The Chamber thanks Leader McConnell for putting forward the Senate Republican proposal and especially for the focus on liability protections for businesses who follow public health guidelines. To support our economy, Congress must also provide targeted and temporary assistance to unemployed Americans, employers, and state and local governments. The clock is ticking and there is no time for the traditional Washington games; we urge Republicans and Democrats to come together now and enact the relief American workers, families, and employers need.”
